Watering Tips and Tricks for Potted Plants, Revised

Spring is here, which means summer is right around the corner. Last year our region suffered a record breaking drought, and in areas where water is limited, one has to get creative when it comes to keeping potted plants from drying out in the harsh winds and baking temperatures of the season. A little bit of planning ahead can save you time and water in the future.

Last fall I double potted my four brugmansias . I put them beside my house and drive way. Our dryer vent is also on that side of the house. That side gets 6 hours of sun a day. The brick wall soaks up the heat from the sun. Thus making a microclimate for my brugmansias. They have come back two years in a row. The whole time I thought that I dreamed up the idea about double potting. Lol ! What makes it so odd is the pots are above the soil. We are in zone 7a.? Just luck I guess ? But it worked !
